Women In Law Empowerment Forum awards DLA Piper with Gold Standard Certification
DLA Piper has announced that the firm has received Gold Standard Certification from the Women in Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF) for the third consecutive year.
WILEF’s Gold Standard Certification is the only initiative directed toward certifying, and broadly celebrating and publicising, eligible law firms that have integrated women into the highest leadership positions in the firm.
To qualify for certification, law firms with 200 or more practising lawyers in the US must show that women are represented in a significant percentage of firm leadership positions.
DLA Piper successfully demonstrated that women represent a meaningful percentage of not only its highest leadership positions, but also of its governance and compensation committees and its most highly compensated partners.
